Part of the whole Ramore experience enjoyed a relaxed dinner as part of a group of 8. Big portions, good value and very reasonably priced wines. Good service.

Lovely meal and buzzing central location. Fabulous seafood dishes to choose from. Staff at bar rushed off their feet so hard to get drinks in when we arrived. Moved to front bar after food and less busy so much better service.

Yes. They are the same building. The bar is a small traditional pub at the front and facing the harbour. which is connected to the much larger Bistro.
